Rejoicing in good luck

Fainjin and I were walking along the street when I spotted some money on the ground.

“Quick, Fainjin, pick it up!” I urged.  “You can keep that.”

He regarded “his” find with awe.  “Wow! Twenty dollars!”

“Um,” I grinned as he held up the little silver coin, “no, twenty cents.”

“Cents! Cool!  That’s my first cents, eh Mum?”

He was just so happy to have a little extra money for his piggy bank.  He held it safe and warm in his hand for the rest of the afternoon until we got home.
